Pre-paid Sbb visa card holders.

Hi. Already googled and checked the previous posts.
My questions are for those who have the Sbb PRE-paid visa/halb tax cards.

How do you load cash in the cards?

How to check the balance online?

How long does it take for the cash to show up in your card once you load it online via your primary online banking options.

I read that loading cash in it via Post finance costs 2chf per transaction and that there is no cost after loading it online.

The ones who use this card, I would appreciate your feedback.

Thank you.

you get a orange slip I think for the first deposit which is free, and subsequent deposits are charged a fee %.

have it, but don't really use it. more to save the chf15.00, specially, since they gave me as prepaid rather than postpaid and I didn't challenge it...

Re: Pre-paid Sbb visa card holders.

Since August, SBB doesn't give free VISA cards with GA or half-fare cards anymore. The new credit card costs CHF 60 (the prepaid credit card CHF 30) per year.

Re: Pre-paid Sbb visa card holders.

Have you read all the fees? I wanted to cancel the card and asked them to send the balance to my post finance account. They said OK, but they charged me 20 chf without telling anything. Now they ask me why I cancelled my card
